LAST EDITION: by Frank Fiances At the age of OS Chauncey M. Bcpcw contracted pneumonia, -which ended the career of the fa- jnous man. He was a man -30 years old near close of the Civil and was a contemporary of Garfield, Blaine and other 1'eaders of his party. For. so years he'was recognized as America's most gifted after-dm- ncr speaker. But at last the years, have .crept. upon him to such a degree that he could not recover. So the story goes, over and over. Though you have the vitality to carry you on through many years, finally the summons comes. And whether you are 93 or only 3S, the experience is much the Hold Teacher For Licking Student We live a day at a time and life, as reviewed, is as a dream. So why worry as to the number of years. Rather be concerned that' into the day. you now have shall DC crowded many moments of real living. _ Aim to ha.ve a balanced day of service, of relaxation, of medita- tion, of serious of laugh- ter and of contentment. M Edwavd E. Spattord, national. commander of the American legion who is to be the guest of honor of Herman Baker post this evening, making a campaign for the univ.er- sal draft measure, now before con- gress, and known as the Capper- Johnson bill. During the World war young men were drawn into the Imerican army and of ihem went overseas. The average pay of the soldier boys was' a day. LA FOLLETTE FATE IN DOUBT INWJSCONSIN Smith Democrats Disturb Progressive Grasp On State MILWAUKEE, Wis., April of the Wisconsin delegation to the Kansas City Re- publican convention still, swayed' in ;he balance between the regular Republicans and the LaFollette forces when SO per cent of the-pre- cincts in "Wisconsin had reported :oday. In'12 of the 26 contests the reg- ular-Republicans were leading. Al- though the LaFollette forces held a slight edge, as their candidates forged to.the front'in 14 contests, the race- was so close that a change of a few hundred votes in certain districts might displace the lead- s. SPECTACULAR FIGHT Walter Kohler Kohler, regular -was continuing the spectacular fight which he has waged with.Senator Elaine for sec- ond .place'in the -contest .for dele- gate at large. .is ,ea- were their. .service timaied made 'in the United States. To avoid tiat condition at some time in the the American legion is demanding that when war comes again not only the men who go to war shall be drafted, but those who stay at 'home, also indus- try. the railroads and the food supplies be placed under military supervision. There ara to, be no more war profiteers, or advocates of war who do not go to war. If National- Commander Spaf- succeeds in arousing a strong in favor of that measure, his visit will serve to fine purpose. When war is declared, not only the boys who enter -tho canton- ments should be under military control, but tho entire resources of ahe country should be mobilized. Many men during the World war were slackers received big wages and thereby profited by the jrar. The soldier boys came homo from Trance to discover that the shirk had fattened off their hard expe- riences and there was resentment. There must bfi no repetition of that unfair treatment. Great Britain, having placed re- strictions on the rubber exported from British Malay and Ceylon, boosted the prices of rubber and caused friction with the buyers in the United States. Since 1922, when the restrictions first established, the Ameri- can trade has been trying to ;lnd a way to escape. Of late chemists here and In Europe have been "reporting prog- ress toward synthetic rubber and American concerns have been es- tablishing rubber plantations on the west coast of Africa and elsewhere. Undoubtedly feeling that the world would find other sources .of rubber, the British government has lifted the restrictions. PITTSBUKG, Pa.', April Peter Schoe-. maker, prlnciiuil of the Hannas- towii public school, today faced court on charges of assault and battery as an aftermath of paddling administered to For- rest Showalter, 10, a pupil .at the rattan whip. The warrant for the arrest of Mrs. Schocmaker was sworn out by tho boy's father, who averred his son was beaten after he was taken inside the building while playing in the school yard. Mrs." Svhoeniakcr admitted whipping the boy. She contend- ed ho stood in front of the school with a mirror and cast the reflection of the sun into her room, annoying her. CHICAGO CASE REGRET SHOWN BY COOLIDGE, PAPEIUVERS President Is R e.p o r t e d To Oppose Federal. Interference CROWE IS OPPOSED Crime Commission Holds Him Unsuited For Position incts in the state missing, Kohler iad polled votes, and was trailing Senator T31ain'e'vby only Senator Robert M. LaFollette was in the lead with a margin of 000 votes-over Blaine. Kohler and Andrew L. Kreutzer (regular) of Wausau were in third and fourth place, respectively. LIKELY TO SPLIT If the present trend continues, the LaFollette and the- regular Re- publican forces will split'the four delegates at large. Tho closeness of the present race is emphasized when it is recalled that the regular Republicans.cap- tured-only .one of the 29 Wisconsin seats to the national convention at Cleveland in 1924. In seeking an explanation for the failure of LaFollette progressives to .capture the entire state delega- tion, political observers hold that the Democratic revival in'the state pushed by Smith .menv was partly responsible. NEW FARM BILL IS DESCRIBED Haugen Says It "Meets Objections Raised- In Veto CHICAGO, April The Herald an'd Examiner said today, that President Coolidge had'given his personal attention to the politi- cal aspect involved. in the recent shooting of a Chicago'court bailiff- by a federal, dry agent.' The' news- paper said that.it had president told Secretary Mellon and Attorney-General Sargent "In no unmistakable .words that .-he re- gretted-, the appearance--of an in-' trusion .of-the govern- ment -into a- local campaign." Information.to 'the. newspaper was that as a 'result, of f he Wash- ington conference the 'spe'cial: pro- hibition unit headed-by George-. E. Golding would not .be withdrawn, from Chicago at once, but that it probably would be confined to routine.work. Myron Caffey, fed- eral agent, has been charged with shooting William Beatty, court bailiff, during a prohibition raid.' NO ARREST MADE Although the Beatty .'shooting-oc- curred several nights- ago, "Caffey., has not been arrested, due: to. friction .between, police and federal officers. It.' was indicated, -how- that- difficulties .would be' brushed'-aside today, and' that the state would' go -ahead with, its plan, to indict- Caffey.. Following his in- government would be able' to move legally for'.th'e trans- fer .of the case from'state to federal courts.

PLANE IS READY JOR BIG TAKE-OFF Chauncey Depew Dead, Nearly 94 Years of Age, In Politics With Lincoln Most Widely Known For His After-Dinner Speeches and Incurable Optimism, He Was Leader in Business. World and Held Position of Chairman of Board of New-York .Central Railroad Up to'His Fatal Illness; Senator For Two Terms; Retained Youthful Spirit. YOKE, April .M. Depew, pic- i> turesque grand old man, who entered.politics before Lin- coln was mentioned .for the presidency and for more than 70 years, was famed as an .after-dinner speaker, died at a. m. today at his home'of bronchial pneumonia. He had .been iU for less than a week' and would have been 94 years old; on April 23. He continued an active career On Wednesday raw rubber sold at one-half the price which the British tried to establish as a min- imum five years ago. There will be no regrets in this country that the British scheme to boost prices has fallen through. Xo people are more insterested in this news than the Americans, are the great rubber users of the world. Twenty years ago the total pro- duction of rubber was. 6S.OOO tons, of which one-half was consumed in tho UnitPd States. 1-ast year over half a million tons was produced and tons was shipped to the United tSatcs. America was paying nearly half a billion dollars a year for its rub- ber. This is a victory for the Ameri- cans, who, rebelling, started out. to. defeat the British rubber monop- oly restrictions. WASHINGTON, .April new McNary-Haugen.bill in- troduced yesterday was described to the house today in a.formal report by Chairman of its agri- cultural committee as- a measure differing materially from that ve- toed a year ago .by President-Cool-, idge and so modified that it now proposes "two distinct and entirely separate remedies" for the farm sit- uation. "The changes which have been Jie said, "meet in a large part the objections expressed by the president in his message returning the former measure- without his ap- proval. "Especially does the present bill provide an almost unlimited oppor- tunity for the. administrative body created under.it to .deal with tho problem of agricultural surpluses through1 loans, which, those who have opposed'the past committee bills urge would be fully adequate to meet the situation. "The present-bill proposes two distinct and entirely separable rem- edies; first, loans to co-operative as- sociations at a low rate of interest, as frequently suggested by the sec retary of agriculture, Mr. Jardinc. "And, second, in case of failure of the first remedy to accomplish the purposes of- the act, the mak- ing of marketing agreements pro- viding that cost and losses on trans- actions authorized under tlie agree- ments would be paid by the "com- modity whose producers receive the direct benefit. "Both methods are directed toward promoting orderly market- ing, and, in the cose of tariff-pro- tected commodities, making, the tariff effective." Kubber, by the way, has become a necessity in the life'Of America. Ir. was not so many years ago rubber had a most limited use. Republican H o mi nation DUBLIN, April German airplane Bremen today was fueled at Baldonnel airdrome and ready to take off at' a few hours' notice. The field Itself was still .soft from recent rain's and authorities said there Tyas- little chance of the. heavily, laden plane being' able -to take off for New York before' tomorrow. The gas'tanks in the-wings were filled with the benzol primed with ether, upon which'the Germans de- p.end to carry them. 3500 miles over the Atlantic. With the wings, regular and emergency tanks the Bremen carries 2500 pounds .of fuel... This is considered, sufficient to keep the plane in flight for more than. 40 hours and', give a1 flying 4500 miles. CANTON IS TENSE AFTER EXECUTION CANTON, China, April was tense today'after. 303 reds'had been' executed by the mili- tary authorities in an attempt to thwart an uprising. Th'e .commun- ists boasted that bloodshed would only make their, movement the stronger and hasten the present Cantonese 'government. Seventy-three reds, were execut- ed today and- 230 .earlier _in the week-when a 14-year-old, .-street urchin revealed communist the authorities after listening to them'.gossiping, in-the streets.
